There are currently two IMAP implementations on trunk. One has a
straightforward design and is currently unmaintained. The second is an
experimental rewrite. This code is under active development but is
difficult to work with (my interest is in advanced high performance
mail architectures and it's an in-place rewrite since I use it for my
mail).

The main implementation is incomplete, buggy and leaks memory. The new
implementation works ok with the clients I use and is very close to
being feature complete. But the original should be fixable by
cross-porting.
Which version interests you?
